    Potato Soup?

    Advertisements
    Anyone have a recipe for Crock pot potato soup?

    I have one, but we tried it and didn't like it! I used hashbrowns and cream cheese. It didn't have any other cheese, bacon, real potatoes..

    We decided that we weren't going to be that recipe in our book.

    Thanks!

    I used this one and it was a hit

    1 package cubed frozen hashbrowns
    2 cans cream of chicken
    1 can cream of celery
    1 pint Half & Half
    1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup butter
    salt and pepper to taste
    Melt butter in crockpot. Add remaining ingredients (except cheese, salt and pepper).
    Cook in crockpot on high for 3-4 hours.
    Add 1 cup cheese, salt and pepper before serving. Use reserve cheese to sprinkle on top.

    I did make some changes, I didn't have frozen hashbrowns so I just cut up some potatoes. I think I did about 4 cups but it's been awhile since I last made it. I also didn't have any half and half so I jsut did regular milk. But I think my mom mentioned you can used evaporated milk as a substitute. I also used extra cheese because I love cheese

    I don't have a crock pot recipe, I usually make mine in the pressure cooker. I just peel and cut up 3-4 potatoes or more if they are small and put them in the pot with some water, butter, and whatever seasonings I likePerfect pinch steak seasining is the best, cayenne. chicken flavoring). Then once the potatoes are done I mash them a little bit and had a ton of velveeta cheese and more seasoning for taste.

    I prefer mine soupy but if you like it thicker you can add in some instant potato flakes or drain some of the water after the potatoes are cooked.

    1 package of potatoes O' Brien Hash browns that aren't shredded (frozen section).
    1 envelope of the white country gravy mix.
    3 cans of fat free chicken broth.

    Whisk gravy and broth together. Add potatoes, bring to boil. Bring down and let simmer for 20 min.

    Mine isn't for a crock pot but it's really good! I just boil potatoes, then drain them. I use a blender/food processor to puree them with chicken brother. Then add a bit of sour cream at the end, salt, pepper, and top with bacon and sharp cheddar. I recently made a soup the same way but used cauliflower instead of potatoes, it tasted almost the same but a lot healthier! That one needed a roux made first though.

    I've never used hashbrowns in a potato soup recipe, or cream cheese.

    I boil potatoes, mash them a little, add milk/cream, chicken stock, seasonings, cheese, bacon, green onion, and tada. Potato soup.
